Florida’s Water and Land Legacy is a coalition of the state’s leading conservation organizations including The Trust for Public Land, Audubon Florida, Florida Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club and many others. Together with concerned citizens, they have united to launch a major constitutional amendment campaign for the November 2014 ballot.
A constitutional amendment is the best way we can assure that adequate funding is dedicated solely to restoring critical natural areas, like the Everglades, and protecting Florida’s magnificent waters and lands for future generations. Floridians understand the value of clean and abundant water for people and wildlife, and they cherish the natural areas that make Florida special. That’s why the amendment would ensure that these values have a place in our state’s constitution.
We need volunteersat our campaign headquarters in Tallahassee’s Midtown to help with general office work, data entry, making phone calls, packet assembly, and much more.
Together, we will be preparing to launch our statewide effort to gather one million signatures to place the Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the November 2014 ballot.
